Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

No water spraying in the dishwasher

This is an older frigidaire model # FDB878GCT0. We received it from a friend of the family and hooked it up, when we started a normal cycle to try it out there was steam in there when we opened the door, but nothing was wet. It was like there was no water being sprayed. Could someone please help us.

Good Afternoon Friend, this is Z. I appreciate your post!

I show that your Frigidaire dishwasher was produced in 2005. However, if your dishwasher is not cleaning properly, are you using gel packs? It is recommended using powder or liquid detergent since it's easier to dissolve. Also, please make sure your residence water supply is between 120F - 130F for optimal performance. Next, will the spray arm rotate freely? If it is not, trying removing and replacing back the spray arm assemblies. The top spray arm typically starts to function when your dishwasher is in rinse or wash cycle. If the dishes continue to not clean properly, it is possible that the top spray arm is either blocked by pots/pans or not enough water pressure is being pump. If you tap the delivery tube that feeds this nozzle and the water pressure jumps immediately, then the problem may lie with a faulty pump or impeller. Should all basic troubleshooting measures fail contact a certified technician to narrow down the precise issue before investing in parts that may or may not be the root cause. Hope this helps!

Hello friend, thank you for your post!

Your water valve or spray arm could be the reason no water is getting to the top of your dishwasher. Remove the spray arm and clean it out with warm water. Also check to make sure that nothing is obstructing the spray arm from releasing water onto the dishes. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt

No water when running dishwasher


Good Morning Friend,

I understand that you are not receiving any water in your Frigidaire dishwasher. I also see that you have replaced the water fill valve. I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your appliance and determine what the cause is, of your dishwasher not receiving water. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Standing water in model FDB1050RESO frigidaire electrolux dishwasher 2005 model


Good Afternoon Friend,

I see that you have standing water in your Frigidaire dishwasher, model# FDB105RES. I would suggest trying the troubleshooting tips below:

• If your appliance is hooked up to a food waste disposer, make sure the disposer is empty.

• Check to see if the knockout plug has been removed from inside the food waste disposer inlet.

• Check to see if the drain hose is kinked.

• Make sure the cycle is complete and not in a pause mode.

If you are still having trouble with your dishwasher not draining, I recommend contacting either the manufacturer or a local authorized technician. Hope this helps.

-Best Regards-

The top spray arm is not turning as best i can tell. bottom one is.. frigidaire model # fdb1050rec2. please help! thank you


If your dishwasher does not fill up with the correct amount of water the top spray arm will not get the water pressure it should.
The water level should be just under the heating element.

Installed an older model dishwasher for a friend power works oes throuth the cycles but its not pumping water into the uniT there is no clogs and i hear the pump turn on. unsure why its not getting water...


You will need to disassemble the bottom part where the bottom rotary spray nozzle is(the part that shoots water upwards). The impeller might have come loose or it is clogged in that area.

I have a frigidaire ultra quite modle number fdb126rbs1 there is a a spout with a rubber flap on the end and it is shooting water out of it with a lot of presure?


Hi, lilztheman


You said,
I have a Frigidaire ultra quite model number fdb126rbs1 there is a a spout with a rubber flap on the end and it is shooting water out of it with a lot of pressure?

And is the water inside your dishwasher and cleaning your dishes??
Please clarify what the problem is and what's wrong.
Where is it shooting pressured water too?

This dishwasher has the older tower type spray system inside the dishwasher.
It consists of a number of tower like tubes that fit one inside the other by the water pressure and they all are pushed up into each other to create a tower which sprays the dishes clean with high pressure water.
At the top of the tower is a plastic cap to direct the water with pressure in all directions!
Please tell me in detail what the problem is so I may suggest a solution.
